Apple, hoping to use its own products on both mobile and PC platforms as well as in its software, delayed its hopes to 2019.
The rumor that Apple has about processors and Intel has begun to present various problems for the company’s new MacBook plans. As a matter of fact, Apple, who wanted to use the Cannon Lake processors to introduce Intel for the new MacBooks expected to be introduced this fall, decided to give up on this plan and use the 14 nanometer Kaby Lake Refresh processors. Apple, which wants to produce its own ARM based processors from one side, has to work very hard on this issue.
Kaby Lake Refresh processors, which are planned to be used in future MacBook models, will be Core i7 running at 4.0GHz and 4.2GHz and Core i5 models running at 3.4GHz and 3.6GHz, while the expected Cannon Lake processors will have a technology of 10 nanometers instead of 14 nanometers. Apple was planning to use these new processors under normal conditions to increase both battery efficiency and to sell the product with more appropriate figures in the price range, but it seems that the plan has dropped.
MacBooks and iMacs are currently working with Intel processors, but it is said that Apple is beginning to experiment with the MacOS operating system on its own chips. Such a development is not only for Apple, but for developers as well. These processors, which will be produced by Apple, will have the same processor architecture as Mac, iPhone and iPad.
Previous reports have shown that Apple targets sales of $ 799 for MacBooks. But there is no information about whether this model is a MacBook or if it is a MacBook Air. All that is known about this is that the model will have a screen size of 13 inches. Let’s see what happens to MacBooks and processors in the coming months. We will be patient and see each other.
